It may be hard to pronounce, but zereshk poloe and morgh is absolutely wonderful combination of roasted saffron-infused chicken with buttered steamed basmati rice. Sprinkled across the top are tiny, cranberry-like berberries. Owner Hassan Soleimani’s small, casual eatery specializes in Persian fare including silky hummus, mirza ghasemi (baked eggplant dip) and torshi (pickled vegetables). It’s worth visiting on weekends for fall-of-the-bone lamb shank. Finish up with nutty baklava and a glass of floral Persian tea. **
